DALLAS--()--Generational Group, a leading investment banking firm for privately held businesses, is pleased to announce that it has once again been recognized by The M&A Advisor at the 21st Annual M&A Advisor Awards.

Generational Group was honored with the following awards:

Consulting Firm of the Year

Energy Deal of the Year: RELiON Battery

Utilities Deal of the Year: Allied Underground

Private Equity Deal of the Year, $10-25M: Independent Benefit Advisors

Emerging Leaders Awards: Chad Comroe and Tristan Keeffe

Founded in 1998, The M&A Advisor offers insights and intelligence on M&A activities across the globe. It has become the premier network of M&A, Turnaround and Finance professionals, recognizing excellence, honoring achievement, presenting thought leadership, and facilitating connections among the world’s leading dealmaking professionals.

“The award recipients represent the best in the M&A industry this past year and earned these honors by standing out in a group of extremely impressive finalists,” said Roger Aguinaldo, Founder of The M&A Advisor. “From lower middle market to multi-billion dollar deals, we are recognizing the leading transactions, firms and individuals that represent the highest levels of achievement.”

The award winners, representing over 400 organizations, were judged by an independent panel of industry experts.

Generational Chief M&A Officer Brenen Hofstadter said: "Congratulations to the Generational teams who earned these prestigious awards. We are having another tremendous, record-setting year, and having our peers recognize our performance and our professionals is very gratifying.”

Hofstadter added, “While M&A traditionally has been cyclical, we are now experiencing what has been anticipated over the past 30 years: the M&A SuperCycle, fueled by the retirement of the baby-boom generation. This will result in upwards of $10 trillion of aggregate deal values and liquid wealth transfer.”

Ryan Binkley, President and CEO of Generational stated, “I am really proud of our entire team and congratulate everyone for winning these awards this year. It is great to be recognized, of course, but it is our clients who are at the heart of each of these awards. I applaud the passion and dedication of all our associates in helping our clients reach their financial goals and leave the legacy they so richly deserve.”

Of special significance to the Generational family, David N. Deutsch, President of David N. Deutsch & Co., was recognized as the recipient of the 2022 Thomas Farrell Memorial Award. In 2017, The M&A Advisor established the Thomas Farrell Memorial Award to honor the memory of Thomas “Tom” Farrell, former Executive Vice President of Generational Equity and to celebrate his contributions to the mergers and acquisitions industry.
